Windows 7: Direct network connection shortcut?

Direct network connection shortcut?

Anyone has any idea how to create a direct shortcut that when I click on it - it will display the prompt where I click "connect" and get connected? Now I have to click on the icon next to the clock, then choose the connection, then click connect, then click connect in the prompt yet again. I used to have that shortcut right on the desktop on XP and it was so much more convenient.

Thanks!

Have a look at the RASPHONE and RASDIAL command-line utilities. They're scriptable, so you could relatively easily create a shortcut to a batch file which invokes the desired connectoid.
